340:105-10-121. Area Agency on Aging and Title III project salaries

Revised 6-1-11

(a) Policy.  Area Agencies on Aging (AAA) and Title III projects develop staff to competently perform programmatic and financial duties based on local needs, available funding, and market value. Persons with comparable job family descriptors (JFD) are not paid more than the midpoint of the salary range of a JFD paid within the Oklahoma Department of Human Services (OKDHS) salary cap.  The total administration costs charged to the Title III grant may not exceed the maximum provided in federal law.

(b) Authority.  The authority for this Section is Part 1321.11 of Title 45 of the Code of Federal Regulations.

(c) Procedures.  The requirements for implementing this Section are outlined in this subsection.

(1) AAAs and Title III projects determine starting salaries for positions based on local needs, available funding, and market value, provided persons with comparable JFDs may not be paid more than the midpoint of the salary range paid by the OKDHS for the JFD most like the job in question.

(2) Salary increases are based on acceptable work performance.  The AAA may disapprove salary increases due to uncertain funding allocations and levels.  The Aging Services Division may disapprove salary advances of AAAs if it causes the AAA to exceed the federal maximum administrative cost allowed.

(3) Longevity payments may be made to all AAA and Title III employees using a longevity schedule that is:

(A) fair and equitable to all employees;

(B) consistently applied to both federal and non-federal activities;

(C) based on available funding;

(D) included in AAA and Title III budgets; and

(E) provided for in the AAA policies and procedures manual.

(d) Cross references.  Refer to OAC 340:105-10-117, 340:105-10-120, and 340:105‑10‑122.
